Problem: Indicate whether the series converges or diverges. If it converges, find its sum.

THE SERIES:

2. Relevant equations

The ratio test and w/e equation is used to find the sum of this particular series

3. The attempt at a solution

I was able to find that the series converges, using the ratio test. However, I cannot find the sum of the series. I do not see any way in which I could manipulate the geometric series, or anything like that. Could someone please enlighten me on how to find the sum of this series, or any series in such a form.
